Ethics, Values and Social Work Practice

Linda Bell (Editor), Trish Hafford-Letchfield (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

A framework of ethics and values forms the foundation of social workers' professional identities. Ethics and values should shape the way that social workers practice and how they impact upon the lives of the service users they work to support. In a fast-moving world influenced by shifting policy, tight budgets and changing practice standards, students and practitioners need to anchor their understanding of themselves to clear principles for ethical practice.

Ethics, Values and Social Work Practice is a brand new text offering students and social work practitioners a contemporary and relevant introduction to the central role of ethics and values in their work. In addition to a grounding in the major trends in ethics applied to social work, this book also provides perspectives on:

How to situate ethics and values in social work practice
How to understand ethics as part of reflective practice as both student and practitioner
How ethics and values link to concepts of power, diversity and social justice
The role of ethics and values in interprofessional and partnership working
The guiding principles and ethics inherent in relationship-based social work.

The book supports student learning by providing:
Discussion points to allow time for individual reflection or ethical debates
Case studies based on likely scenarios from practice, with reflection points to help social workers engage with the issues raised
Chapter summaries and key points for social work practice to reinforce the relevance of your learning to real social work practice
A glossary of key terms as a reference for key ethics terms and concepts.
